I was fixing Charles lunch today when I decided some capers would be delicious. I didn’t exactly make a piccata, but very similar flavors. Angel hair pasta seemed like the perfect touch and just as I was finished Charles comes to the kitchen to see what I am doing; only to remind me he wasn’t taking lunch today as they are giving away hot dogs at work. So, I imagine he will come home complaining of heart burn and I will remind him of the fabulous lunch I made for him that is still waiting in the fridge for tomorrow! I had the tiniest taste and I think it will be delicious!
